Forums - Politics Discussion - More Americans died in Chicago than in the Iraq & Afghanistan wars combined

I'd just increased the Police force to monitor the areas of Chicago that has the most crime and killings.

I am sorry many countries dont legalize all drugs and dont have 100's of murders in a single city.

Yes and I'm sure these same countries have a tight power structure in place. As in they top leader is not being taken down so he's able to control things. Legalizing all drugs or at the very least decrimnializing all of them has shown to be much more effective across the board. Portrugal has already proven this with amazing results.

It's really surprsing to me that people think throwing drug users in jail would be more effective then using all that money not to right drug users/sellers but to help them with rehab centers. When you make it your priority to help people first instead of just throwing them in a cage great things can happen.

Yes and one way to do this is to legalize all drugs. We have to take the money away from these people otherwise it will never go away. If there is no money in it though they'll be forced to do other things. Just leagalizing marijuana has done massive damage to the cartels.

While we're at it, let's legalize murder and rape.  As long as it's legal, it wouldn't be a crime and be alright.  Is that what you're saying?

No I'm saying that we've been losing this drug war for a long time it's time to try something new. Protrugal has had great results for over ten years it's time we try instead of continueing to imprison are population to record breaking numbers.

We're better off trying something old that been ignored by many, and that's the family structure I mentioned in another post. Strong families build strong communities.  You address and tackle the problems of the heart and the role-models, and you prevent the issue we're talking about.



What this really demonstrates is one of two things.

Either the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars were so successful that hardly any casualties happened, or that Chicago is such a massive shitstain on America that it needs martial law to be brought in line.

Yeah in Canada,Chicago would have the army sent in by now lol

 

Toronto a similar size city had 70 murders



Well of course more people died in Chicago than Iraq and Afghanistan. Chicago is a city of millions. Unless they found the fountain of youth or something, more than a few thousand were going to die in the course of a decade. Duh.



About 10 people a day were shoot & wounded in 2016.

The last 30 days

2/22 had a military shoot/kill ratio

I suggest people in Chicago stop killing each other.
